The St.Amant Leisure Guide offers leisure and recreation opportunities for children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism who are supported by St.Amant.
St.Amant is pleased to announce the continuation of the St.Amant Leisure Guide this winter, from January 14-March 10. Programs will offer a variety of activities for all ages and abilities – both on-site and in external community settings. Previous program activity examples have included yoga, baking, oil & water painting, instrumental jamming, collaborative video-gaming, karaoke, crafting, and more. Drawing on a wealth of facilitator expertise, the St.Amant Leisure Guide works to offer diverse leisure and recreational opportunities for St.Amant affiliates with developmental disabilities, autism and acquired brain injuries.
We are currently:
- Accepting proposals from those who have skills to share and wish to facilitate a proposed activity.
- Looking for individuals to build on specific, pre-determined programs that we would like to see take place in our next session.
